    The atmosphere looked nice and relaxing, the food look good to the patrons that were getting served. Guiness on tap was a plus. I sat at a high top for about 15 minutes and servers and bussers walked right by my empty table. They never greeted the table or even put a glass of water on the table. I'd liked to stay positive and say I'll try them one day, but for now I just want to flick all them in the forehead.

    I haven't tried something at Pete' s that I didn't like. But there are five things you HAVE to try: 1. Bleu cheese french fries. We got these almost EVERY time we went. 2. Sunday morning for breakfast. Order the fruit and granola. 3. Second best burger downtown. GET IT. It is SOOOO good. 4. The macaroni and cheese. 5 types of cheese, and perfect cheesy layer on top, covering creamy one-of-a-kind mac. 5. The grilled cheese! OMG.

    Pete's is likely my favorite restaurant in Downtown LA. I love their location (ground floor of the historic San Fernando building). I love their decor and atmosphere and I certainly love their food. Their hellman burger w/ sweet potato fries is likely one of my most often eaten meals. I can't really explain how much I enjoy the atmosphere here. While the rest of they city rages on the craziest party nights pete's always manages to keep a lower key classy vibe. So when the DTLA scene is raging out of control you can almost always find me hanging out here. Food is great across the board however some of their full dinner courses are a little costlier. However I don't think I have ever walked away from a meal thinking I paid more then I should have. Beer prices also appear to have headed north (although I feel like drinks throughout downtown seem to get more expensive by the month). If there's one gripe I can make with Pete's it's the consistency of the service. All the waiters and generally upbeat and having a good time. However food can take quite a while to come out and their continued attentiveness to the tables could be a lot better. Don't be surprised if you need to ask for something like water more then once especially during the busier hours of the night.

    Have been going to Petes for 9 years. It opened with a bang and has see-sawed up and down for most of them. The food is always solid. Not the most consistent but solid. The Helman burger / veggie or otherwise is always a safe bet. Go there when needed.

    Delicious! Yummy yummy! Went there to split a mac n cheese and warm apple tart with cinnamon ice cream with a friend andboth were delicious. Hostess was nice but could have been nicer. Waiter was very personable and a very pleasant guy. (tall white dude with glasses) I like the ambiance and the attention to detail in the food. It's a good evening hang out spot if you just want to get drinks or if you want a whole meal. I am definitely going back.
